Fiat Chrysler recalling 1.25 million pickups for software error

To be proactive, Chrysler is recalling some of the pickup models to fix a software error. The error can cause the side airbags to be disabled and seat belt tension during a roll over. Likelihood of this happening is very low, and while there were 3 accidents it could have, no blame has been placed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chrysler Automobiles said Friday it is recalling more than 1.25 million pickups worldwide to address a software error linked to reports of one crash death and two injuries.
  • The company will reprogram computer modules in the affected vehicles to address this error.
  • Fiat Chrysler said the recall would start late in June.

“A growing number of auto recalls have been sparked by software issues as more vehicle functions are controlled by computers.”
